It gets a bit crazy – we started registries at Macy’s and Crate & Barrell before finding myregistry.com.  You can install a button on your browser that allows you to add anything from anywhere.  We’ve not had anything purchased off it yet (we’re still a bit early in the process), but have had a good time filling it with all sorts of things without being restricted or worrying about duplicates.

Whatever you choose, best of luck!

The issue with registering at a million places it that it starts to look like you’re a little greedy and expecting to get MANY gifts.  

While you do have a lot of options, I’m sure it’s fine as long as you didn’t register for hundreds of things at each store 🙂 Atleast this way everyone will have a store that they like – hopefully – out of all of those choices. It also gives lots of options for shower gifts as well.

I asked a while ago how many places most people were registering at, and it seems like three is the number – a few folks had four.  I suppose the main thing to remember is that most of your guests are going to look at probably maximum two of your registries, and not go any further than that unless they absolutely can’t find something to get you with that level of effort.  The more places you register, probably the fewer things you have on each registry, which makes it more likely that people look at a couple and can’t find anything left that they want to give you (which is sort of discouraging for them).  If there is a way to consolidate them on a single website that helps.  For people who go into the actual store, its even worse (unless maybe they are all located close together).  You may end up getting more gifts off-registry, just because people decide they are not going to one more store…  You can probably solve this by registering for a ridiculous amount of total gifts, to make sure there isn’t any single store with maybe only 20 things to choose from.

I would say if I saw that many registeries I would feel overwhelmed and a little annoyed at the bride (not that you have bad intentions).

I would cut down to 3 or 4 max or do that an online consolidated registry thing. .

Thanks IndianBride – I was wondering if I was a total b**** for my potential degree of annoyance.  The thing is, you want shopping for your present to be fun for the guests.  Having so many stores that it potentially takes hours makes it seem kind of like work.  I think that the point of registry is to make gift-giving somewhat easy, as well as to help make sure you get what you want or need.
